So it is a little out the way from the centre but only €15 in a taxi. Well worth it. So the service was brilliant. Staff couldn't be any more welcoming.

The atmosphere on a Saturday was great and all the added extra's they give you really makes for a lovely evening.

The food was equally as good as the service. The pasta first dishes and steaks particular good.

If you only it once in Milan - well recommended.

This is a must visit restaurant in Milan. Food, and staff are fabulous
They keep brining you free of charge appetisers, free liqueur and a table full of confectionary to munch through at the end if you wish. My wife and I were so impressed that we have booked again for tomorrow night.
I would advise booking a table as there was a queue of people waiting for tables as we left

We had an excellent experience here. We ran about 1 hour before arriving. They made an effort to fit us in and called us back to confirm our booking.
I had read about the extras that are provided at the beginning of the meal but we did not realise here big the serves of the antipasto were. We ordered two and found that one would have been enough. Especially since we ordered pasta and steak main courses.
The two pasta dishes we had were excellent with great sauces. Mine was the ravioli with the cheese and truffle sauce was fantastic.
Both my friend and mine steak were both well cooked, tasty and tender. The provided lemoncello was a good finish but the grappa was excellent.
At all times the wait staff and their advice were excellent and timely.
After paying our host said the treat the restaurant as "our home in Milan".
We did and turned up next night and repeated the very hospitable experience.
Make a reservation because this is a busy place but friendly all the same.

What a disappointment! We were in Milan only for one afternoon and contemplated for a while where to have a relaxing meal. Having examined the reviews on the Trip Advisor, we opted for L'Immagine... Food was only average, service bearably decent.
This was the biggest disappointment of our seven day trip to Italy.

Good morning Sasa,
I well remember your table! Unfortunately played a little bad luck on your behalf. Weekend evening with general strike in Milan with Exhibition and big match! Have you found less relaxing evening throughout the year in Milan. I know that when you are on holiday you want all the relaxation you can and, if you're not with the right spirit, everything seems to have a disappointment, but unfortunately when in Milan there is a strike so important blocks across the city and timetables of reservations were staggered. All our guests have arrived simultaneously and we did the somersaults to make them eat all. This is not the way we work, but if, for more forces, we find ourselves in these situations, we do everything we can. I really regret much not having met and not having passed the evening in relax who had experienced even now through. I hope there is a next time for you again. Grazie Mille Mirko Fragale

This restaurant has a friendly young staff; it is obvious that they enjoy working there. It made our evening a lot of fun.

Three of us shared appetizers of carpaccio of tuna, meatballs and eggplant parmigiana with a bottle of Sangiovese. The entrees included a grilled ribeye steak and an excellent lasagna made with a béchamel sauce. Everything we ordered was very good, the restaurant also sends a couple of "extras" your way. They have large jars of assorted candies on the tables for before or after meal snacking.

It would be a great place for a special occasion dinner. At one point the music was turned up, the lights went out and the entire staff delivered something to a table along with a Roman candle throwing off sparks for a birthday celebration.

Reasonable prices and a fun evening. Make a reservation ahead of time, I made ours via email from the States before we left and got a prompt reply.
